Considered to be the relocation capital, Glen Abbey includes exceptional schools and is home to Abbey Park High School and St. Ignatius of Loyola Secondary School. Also located in Glen Abbey are two Dorval Plaza’s and a multitude of big box stores. Glen Abbey is bounded by the Upper Middle Road to the North, 16 Mile Creeks to the East, the QEW to the South and Bronte Road to the West.

The Glen Abbey Community is very fortunate to have over 100 kms of trails that includes the Glen Abbey Trail, McCraney Creek Trails, Old Abbey Trails, Indian Ridge Trail and 14 Mile Creeks. One of the special features to this trail system is that it connects all the creeks, woodlots and active parks. This allows for residents to walk, ride and bike throughout the whole community.
Whether you are looking to pick up some fresh bread, hot dinner for the family after a busy day or need to cater an event, Monestary Bakery is the place you to go. This family owned bakery since 1990 has become a regular storefront business for many people both far and near. Monestary Bakery has grown from a small retail space to taking up the entire strip mall and evolved from a bakery to something remarkable you don’t want to miss.
